Art Every Day Month – Day 2

When I face a blank page with the intention of creating, it’s a little daunting — or, as Claire days, “nervous-making.” If I don’t have any ideas, I try to sit with my curiosity as my hands move. One line on the page begets another, and another. Sometimes I’m really surprised with what comes up. Sometimes I really like what I do, and other times I feel unimpressed, but I’m nevertheless astonished at the process.

If you are not killing plants, you are not really stretching yourself as a gardener.
